GetWellNetwork Ranked Among Fastest Growing Companies in North America on Deloitte's 2010 Technology Fast 500™

GetWellNetwork Honored Second Consecutive Year for Exceptional Growth

BETHESDA, MD--(Marketwire - October 20, 2010) - GetWellNetwork, Inc. today announced that it ranked number 386 on Technology Fast 500™, Deloitte's ranking of 500 of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America. Rankings are based on percentage of fiscal year revenue growth during the period from 2005-2009. GetWellNetwork grew an impressive 220% during this period.

Along with achievements in revenue growth, GetWellNetwork has attributes its growth to new innovative health care solutions that are changing the way hospitals and clinicians interact and care for their patients. In 2009, the company launched the industry's first pediatric solution -- GetWell Town -- to help children's hospitals better engage and educate young patients about their health and recovery. This year, the company introduced a new product offering for elderly patients -- GetWellNetwork for Seniors -- to revolutionize how clinicians interact and provide critical education such as medication teaching, pain management and discharge readiness for elderly patients and their families.

"It's exciting to see our work with hospitals grow in such a significant way over the past several years. This year's ranking by Deloitte Fast 500™ is a wonderful recognition of the fast growing movement among hospitals that are leveraging our award-winning patient care platform to support the patient journey throughout the continuum of care," said Michael O'Neil, CEO and founder of GetWellNetwork, Inc. "This is a critical time for the health care industry and we are proud to play a central role in improving the quality of patient care and engagement across the U.S."

"GetWellNetwork has proved itself to be one of the fastest growing tech companies in North America, and we are proud to honor them as one of the 2010 Technology Fast 500™," said Mark Jensen, managing partner, venture capital services, Deloitte & Touche LLP.
